What Is This ?

August 16, 2010 | 2:46 pm

In Windows Computer, I Created My Standalone Application
By Mistake I Pressed Ctrl /. Control, Dot ( Choose Resume To Restart The Scheduler ) this error popped up.
if i go on Preferences in Check Disable Scheduler Stopping. the problem is fixed but if Max 5 is not installed or use my program on another computer and max 5 is not installed the problem continues.
any help is appreciated.

Thank You

Ctrl-period(apple-period on a mac) much like in SuperCollider, PhotoShop and all throughout software history is used to stop a critical process(like a kill switch). In Max, it’s the event-scheduler which stops(i think…)… use Ctrl-r(apple-r on a mac) to resume. If you are having this problem with your standalone every time you start it up and Ctrl-r doesn’t fix it permanently for the standalone, i’d try rebuilding the standalone(and this time, don’t hit ctrl-dot). (when you resume, you may also have to restart any timing processes, for example, if a metro was running, you may have to restart the metro after you do ctrl-r)

yes, control-R is not enough, you also need to loadbang/reinitialize/restart you patches in the max runtime/your app.

you guys are right
I click Ctrl_R in my application
after that I open my patches in maxruntime
after I did that I rebuild the application again
and for now the problem is fixed.

Thank You
